What grade levels are represented at this school?
Nursery to year 13.
How do most children get to school everyday? (bus, train, walk, etc.)
Mostly by car, some by bus and few walk. I do see some early year kids going by bus and they are very tired end of the day travelling far from places like Hartamas. I don't feel that journey is worth for the little kids. A good kindy near home would be better.

Price at canteen reasonable, but not much international cuisine. The library is good although it is rather silly -- kids aren't allowed to use it after school while waiting for parents. The school has good facilities but doesn't, have changing room for PE though the kids are required to change.
